Monster Employment Index: Niederlande
September 2009 Index Highlights:
- The Monster Employment Index Netherlands dipped four points in September, the second consecutive month of decline.
- Online worker demand eased across all industry sectors, with the exception of HR, where opportunities remained stable.
- Hiring retracted the most in Zeeland following an uptick in August; Groningen and Flevoland bucked the overall declining trend.
The decreasing trend in online job offerings in the Netherlands was extended in September, with the economic downturn continuing to affect Dutch online recruitment. Key sectors for the Dutch economy such as logistics and manufacturing reported fewer opportunities reflecting the contributed sluggish global trading environment. However, public driven sectors such as healthcare and social work are elevated compared to year-earlier figures.
